PSG manager Laurent Blanc has confirmed in today’s L’Équipe that Thiago Motta will not be taking part in the Ligue 1 champions’ next friendly match because he is not in the right state of mind to do so.
He had the following to say:
“We are aware of Thiago’s position, it was clearly expressed. That of the club was also expressed very clearly. For the moment, they are incompatible. Thiago Motta will not be playing because he is not in the best frame of mind to do so. I hope that this situation will progress in the right direction because I have a lot of admiration for this player. And this situation cannot go on forever.”
